A collision refers to an incident involving impact with an object or another vehicle.

A single vehicle accident – such as driving into a ditch – could be classified as a “collision” by sources such as law enforcement agencies, first responders, towing companies, estimate and repair facilities and/or insurance companies.

The term “collision” may appear on a report when a damage event reported to us by participating sources includes the term collision.

Before you buy a used car, we recommend that you get a CARFAX Canada Vehicle History Report, take a thorough test drive and have the vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic and/or auto technician to make sure the vehicle is functioning properly.
